Territorial Decoration

Territorial Decoration

La Territorial Decoration ou Médaille territoriale est attribuée aux officiers de l'armée territoriale (réserve) britannique en récompense des services volontaires sous conditions de durée.

Créé en 1908 sous le règne de George V dans le cadre de la réforme des forces de la Réserve.

Les titulaires avaient le droit aux lettres post-nominales T.D..

Le plus célèbre récipiendaire est certainement Sir Winston Churchill qui reçut cette décoration le 18 octobre 1920[1].

En 1999 elle a été remplacée par la Volunteer Reserves Service Medal, attribuée pour tous les grades.
